The transfer switch is located behind the panel on the passenger side pass thru. It is a box that switches from Gen Power to Shore power. You will hear a loud noise under the steps when it switches. We prefer no RV parks, with our toy we boondock as much as possible. That is reason for our Solar investment.
Do you have surge protection? We did a hard wire last summer, big mistake. It failed in Mexico in November and had to pay electrician to remove. I now use a surge protector on the pedestal.

We did buy a surge protector for the pedestals so that hopefully we can avoide that. I am not sure what you mean by you did a hard wire last year, but we do have a surge protector for when we are hooked to shore power. I don't have anything for when we are on gen power. We haven't boondocked much yet, only 1 night, but as we get further down the road here, I may invest in solar. I just want to get the coach running smooth first.

We now have another issue. With our tanks empty and hooked up to city water, I am having a small drip out of the "low point drain" on the curb side. It's not a lot, but it's consistent. Getting worried though that something isn't connected right.

We also own this unit. We love it but have had some issues.
-Few screw heads pushing through on the floor
-Bedroom sliding closet door is making a scraping noise when being pushed
-The header on the pantry door was never nailed into place
-Tank sensors never work properly
-I have noticed recently that the wallpaper seam where wall panels meet (primarily going up the stairs and in the bedroom) seem to be "bubbling" out a bit
-Bedroom door latch is not seated properly and catches the plate on the trim.
-Of most concern so far is some dripping from the plastic water piping in the basement. I took the panels off last night to inspect it and I noticed a few of the connections in the central plumbing area are dripping. This is right behind where the main water inlet is.

Our floor was not right on delivery, they had to take the carpet loose and stretch the Buaeflor.
The bedroom doors were damaged in transport from Indiana. Had to wait 3 months for new ones.
Tanks sensors? Never worked right and still don't after 2 attempts to fix them. You have to cut the underbelly to repair and the flaps have come losse during travel.
I carry Pek pipe and the clamps always. You need a special too to crimp the clamps. Toilets leak and the hot and cold lines in master bath were reversed and leaked many times.
On 3 Rd transfer switch.
Took 8 weeks to fix front landing gear, the motor came off the top of the leg.
The 50 amp fuse in the battery compartment blew, Jayco said replace with 80 amp resettable. This left us without any batteries on a trip.
I could go on a And on but wont

Wow, we have had some very similar issues. In fact, Mike Aplin at Jayco (designer of the 4212) is getting an email today about quality control. Our issues range from stupid oversights in quality control to major problems when one spends as much as we did on this. We have had the unit for just over 2 weeks now and I think we are up to nearly 20 issues, 5-6 of them are fairly concerning. Water leaking from under the rear toilet. The rear railings have already broken the poor weld that was used, carpet staples not pushed all of the way down so you step on them, a rip in the front awning, the molding under the cabinets over the sliding door has come loose, and a few just really minor stupid things like a switch not working or the remote not opening the front awning. But when you pay what we paid, I expect more. I will let you know how my email goes over.

The grey and black tanks were empty, fresh water was full to mostly full. I assumed it was an issue with the toilet until we had some water back up in to our sink in the kitchen.
The porcelain foot flush toilets have an interior valve that will leak water through the toilet to the base and will continue to leak or continually run until fully depressurized. If the connections aren't leaking, that could be a possible cause. Also, your plumbing has "vents" usually located up under a sink to prevent a vacuum from forming. Make sure these aren't obstructed and are functioning properly.

Similar issues

Vent from air conditioner started leaking with heavy rain. Hardware on slide had to be replaced, numerous issues since we purchased it new last Sept. I'm very disappointed in this unit.

I feel your pain! We too are beyond disappointed. On our last trip the TV in the bedroom that comes up from dresser came completely off the wall. The screws attaching the mechanism to the wall weren't even in the stud? Our slide also is not operating again. Had a brake lock up and had to call roadside assistance.

11 months of disappointment and now all the issues that we have had we canceled our Alaska trip for this year.

here is an e mail I sent to Jayco today.............

Just received a call from Camping World Albuquerque concerning the above referenced Seismic. We have struggled with this unit since delivery. I request you check the warranty issues since delivery on May 27, 2015. The unit has now been at Camping World service for a total of 5 months out of the last 11 month of ownership.

We have canceled our Alaska trip due to the on going warranty issues with this unit. We have had parts ordered thru warranty since March 2016. Still not complete at this time. Now the slide in living area has been on ongoing issue since delivery, it is now totally inoperative.

Camping World has been in touch with a Sara Gehrke in your technical Service Dept. concerning the slide issue. It is apparent that the slide has been unpowered and has required someone pushing on it to retract. We have been told that adding 6 rollers vs 3 and changing out the motors from 300:1 to 500:1 is now the solution? If this is the case can replacement parts be expedited to repairs this unit? This Seismic is our retirement, so far it hasnít been much of pleasurable experience.

Last fall it took 7 Ĺ weeks to repair the Lippert front leveling jack, it is my hope this slide issue doesnít take that long.

Please advise

Sincerely
